When pregnancy hormones are riding high, you feel Super Woman. But it’s also true that there are moments in many womens’ pregnancies (certainly in mine) where you feel not so great. Common pregnancy discomforts like nausea, dizziness, exhaustion, achiness, headaches, strong food aversions, etc. can make any mamma-to-be feel like she wants to crawl under the covers and disappear. Any woman experiencing these kinds of symptoms will be told to rest, drink lots of water and/or ginger ale, and eat as plainly as possible.
